R-Type III: The Third Lightning - Summary

Originally released on SNES, August 12, 1994
Wii Points: 800

It was believed on Earth that the deadly BYDO Empire had been destroyed - but now they've returned, as nasty as ever. Their ships and armies are more powerful than before, and Earth will surely be conquered unless the new R-90 ship can destroy them.

Powered with engines that launch it into different dimensions, and armed with the Round, Shadow and Cyclone Forces, the R-90 has what it takes to wipe out the BYDO threat. The BYDO mother ship must be found and destroyed to entirely erase the species from our galaxy.

This one was pretty 'meh.'

I do not recommend. There are far better scrolling shooters out there.
